What is a Cloud?


Growing up we learned about clouds, the ones that we see in the sky.  We learned that they had a number of names such as cumulus, stratus, cirrus and nimbus.  These clouds were responsible for our weather, our views and sometimes our amazement.

In our rapidly changing technology world, clouds have taken on new names; Amazon, Google, Apple, Carbonite and many others.  The term most often used is Cloud Computing.  So what is Cloud Computing?

Cloud computing provides computation, software, data access, and storage services that do not require end-user knowledge of the physical location and configuration of the system that delivers the services.   Simply put, if you need a music file, Word document, application, picture, object or just about anything else digital, you can now store it and access it from any device in the cloud.

Enjoy the view!
